I offer individual, sibling, and family sessions.
Hello! I’m so glad you’re here. Seeking counseling for yourself or your loved one takes strength and compassion, and can be the first step in creating a brighter future. I work with children, adolescents, young adults, and families, and my experience includes supporting youth and young adults with various diagnoses including anxiety, depression, and autism. I utilize CBT and strength based approaches, while meeting my clients where they are at in their growth and healing. I support clients through their journey and transitions, and areas where they are seeking support, such as school, employment, and with their peers and families.

Hello and welcome! If you’ve landed here, you’ve taken the first step in seeking support for yourself or a loved one, and that effort should be celebrated. The idea of sharing details about personal lives with a stranger can be scary. Many people make the choice to connect with a trained therapist and end up finding value in having an unbiased person outside of their friend/ family group listen, validate, and share helpful strategies. I have been practicing as a licensed therapist since 2016 and I find great meaning in being able to partner with people as they move closer towards healing and growth.

The journey of therapy should be something you are drawn toward, not something you have to convince yourself to do. I want my clients to look forward to coming to their sessions, especially when what we're working through is tough. Therapy is a serious and powerful undertaking, but it doesn't have to be ominous. I think being down-to-earth and as lighthearted as possible about the institution of therapy helps to make it feel more accessible and fight any stigma attached to it. I look forward to working with you, you and your partner, or your family !

Whether I am working with an individual, a family , or couple, the process always focuses on looking beyond the surface.
Engaging in therapy is a vulnerable and sometimes scary process. I specialize in working with couples in a committed relationship. Working on relationships I often find the thing that brings couples together initially, gets lost after the "honeymoon" period is over. It is easy to get complacent with all of life's stressors. Being a strength-based therapist, I believe that anything is possible if both people are willing to work. And to be honest, therapy is work! I view my clients as the experts in their life and work together with them to create positive change.

Welcome! My virtual teletherapy space supports teens (ages 13-18) and their families who reside in New York. Teens today face unique challenges. With pressures from social media, friendship, exponentially high adolescent suicide rates, relationship issues, and academic stressors, youth need safe, non-judgmental support and care to feel confident. During these formative years, it’s so important to learn healthy coping skills and build positive relationships with oneself, family , and peers to achieve lasting bonds and tremendous connections.

It is my aim to help clients reclaim fragmented parts of self that make us "whole," reprocess/desensitize traumatic memories and maximize resources by employing EMDR, DBT and Internal Family Systems.
I provide a holistic approach to youth, families and providers by training the brain to grow more resilient to stress and trauma by using therapies informed by the autonomic nervous system. I can assist you in identifying disruptive patterns while together, building a set of more adaptive attitudes about yourself and others as well as integrating somatic and cognitive skills to maintain progress. I am passionate about getting clients closer to understand, trust and love themselves so they can move beyond limiting thoughts, feelings and behaviors. I focus on highly sensitive people and reclaiming the self from relational trauma.

Family Therapy

What do family therapists do?

A family therapist facilitates the process of understanding and improving how a family functions. The therapist will help family members develop empathy for one another. They’ll seek to understand existing patterns, misunderstandings, and conflicts that arise, in order to help the family arrive at a realistic, unified understanding and develop the coping skills they need to build stronger relationships.

How long does therapy for families take to work?

Therapy manifests differently in every family; a common time frame is 12 weekly sessions, but some families may see improvement after just a few weeks. Families should discuss their goals with the therapist at the beginning of the process and periodically revisit those goals to assess their progress together.

How can you encourage a family member to attend family therapy?

You can encourage family members to attend therapy by expressing with both love and concern the challenges you see and explaining how a therapist could help the family navigate those challenges together. An outside perspective can help everyone feel heard, get on the same page, and develop new skills. If family members are still hesitant, it may be helpful to emphasize that family therapy is short-term—it won’t last forever.

Is therapy for families effective?

Family therapy can significantly improve family dynamics and relationships. Research suggests that family therapy can help individuals understand their role in the family, communicate and solve problems together, reduce conflict and draw boundaries when necessary, and develop coping skills for stressors, major life changes, and mental or physical illnesses within the family.
